Dangerous crash near Cloe Lake results in ‘minor injuries’

August 4, 2012

BELL TOWNSHIP — A Big Run teenager suffered only minor injuries when his vehicle drove off of the roadway at 4:35 a.m. Friday Aug. 3 on Cloe Lake Road.

According to Punxsutawney-based Pennsylvania State Police a 1996 Ford Mustang driven by Justin L. Hasty, 19, Big Run, was traveling north on Cloe Lake Road when he failed to negotiate a left curve in the roadway while traveling at a high rate of speed.

Police said Hasty lost control, which caused his vehicle to travel off the east side of the road and strike a large tree with the left side.

Big changes coming to Phil Phest

August 4, 2012

The history of Groundhog Day runs rich in one concept: Fellowship. The origin of the tradition is rooted in a group of men spending a day together on a hunt, and in many ways, the Groundhog Picnic has always been a similar event: Rooted in fellowship and a stag event.

Similar to any tradition, though, evaluation and change are always a good thing, and change is coming to this year's Phil Phest, which will take place Saturday, Sept. 8 from 1 to 9 p.m. at Gobblers Knob.
